Police to hold community meeting about pond robberies

Officers from Jamaica Plain’s District E-13 police station will hold a community meeting tomorrow, Oct. 3, at Jamaica Pond to discuss two recent armed robberies there.

The robberies occurred on Sept. 24, but the Boston Police Department did not alert the general public until nearly a week later. The robbers seemed unusually bold and sadistic, willing to confront a large group of people and to tie one victim to a tree.

The police today issued more detailed descriptions of the two suspects. They are now described as black (Hispanic or non-Hispanic) males, ages 14 to 21. One suspect’s height is around 5 feet to 5-feet-4-inches. The other suspect’s height is around 5-feet-5-inches to 6 feet.

Tomorrow’s meeting will be held at 4:30 p.m. at the Jamaica Pond Boat House, near the intersection of Pond Street and the Jamaicaway. An email announcing the meeting was circulated by District E-13’s Community Service Office and Jullianne Doherty, the JP coordinator for the Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services.

According to the announcement, “questions or comments” about the meeting can be directed to E-13’s commander, Capt. Alfredo Andres, at 617-343-4604.
